A thousand origami cranes

My boys are blessed with an uncle and aunt in Kitakyushu, Japan who never fail to send the most wondrous gifts for each birthday and Christmas. The remote control car, the coolest jumper ever and the most generous gift of all - the time and love it took to make and send to us the first 100 of a thousand origami cranes to help make the bubba well. (J calls it oralgami.)

My smiling bubba is recovering from neuroblastoma ( stage IVs) He was born with cancer - (what a start!) but the only type of cancer which goes away on its own. Who would have thought that were possible.

So, while we wait for our bubba to get completely well, Juri folded cranes, friends, family and complete strangers helped, prayed, worried and hoped.
For their time, thoughts, and help we are utterly grateful.

I hope your bubba gets better soon - he looks really well..I have just completed a walk in honor of my Mum and raised money for a little girl called Kahlilla who has neuroblastoma-check her out at www.kahlilla.com - she has so much strength. Love your blog...
